Question: This switch does not work with 27" Samsung monitor SD850 WQHD Monitor. Any ideas why?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
While we are not intimately familiar with that particular Samsung monitor, looking at the specifications, it does not appear to have a VGA video connector. Are you using a video adapter? Sometimes video adapters can affect compatibility with a product.
If the video is not the issue, what issues are you experiencing?
